I play in a metal band. I have a very high gain sound (not my usual style) through a Randall tube amp. I'm having trouble getting the leads to pop out. I've tried everything from a clean boost to an overdrive pedal. I absolutely have to have delay in the lead tone as well, and I prefer to use pedals instead of the effects loop. So what I am trying now is a boss EQ pedal and an MXR Carbon Copy both going through a bypass looper. They're always on, and then I hit the looper when I want them present for leads. I haven't given it a full run through yet. How do some of you (metal) players eq your leads?
